Mary Pal's Cheesecloth Portraits Will Astound You

Forget Paint, Make A Portrait with Cheese(cloth)

When it comes to creating portraits Mary Pal prefers to use white cheesecloth on a black background to achieve the most dramatic and realistic light and shadows of the individual. In the latest from The Quilt Show, she discusses how different grades of cheesecloth result in less or more obvious open weave (holes) areas. Once the portrait has dried she attaches the finished piece onto linen, buckram or burlap for an even  more textured appearance.

Learn from Mary, and Ricky, by watching them in Learn How to Use Cheesecloth for Appliqué with Mary Pal | How to Make a Quilt Sleeve with Ricky Tims.

In The Store - SnagMagic Needles by SnagMagic

A Pain-Free Way to Bury Threads? Yes Please!

Wouldn't you love an easy way to bury threads on your quilts? Well we've got one - SnagMagic Needles. A large loop on the end of each needle takes the place of an eye, so instead of having to thread a fiddly needle eye for every single thread you want to bury, you pass the thread through the loop - IT'S SO MUCH EASIER. Then you bury it with the needle like you normally would - easy peasy!

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Handmade From Top to Bottom

"Elaborated Tangram" by Michael James

Elaborated Tangram is unique among Michael's works. Of the 300 or so quilts that he has made over 40-something years, this quilt is the only one of his that does not have a single machine stitch on it. Wanting to have one quilt that was entirely made by hand, even going so far as to piece the backing fabric lengths by hand, Elaborated Tangram was the final result and was completed in 1976. Made "to demonstrate contemporary piecing with visually complex designs", the quilt is now in the collection of the International Quilt Museum, and measures 91.5" by 89.5".

The automatic threader on this sewing machine is a game-changer! It saves me so much time and frustration when threading the needle. https://sofiasewing.com/best-sewing-machine-for-advanced-sewers/
